Would you recommend using Marvel Mystery Oil for a slight ticking noise?


Asked by Mar 04, 2015 at 09:50 PM about the 2006 Mazda MAZDA6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just recently bought used with 92,000 miles on it.  Appears to have been well taken
care of and runs great.  However, lately it has been making a slight ticking sound when
first started or after sitting again for a few hours but goes away quickly.  Recently took
for an oil change.  I assume they used the right oil for the car.  Someone suggested I
should use Marvel Mystery Oil half way between oil changes.  Is this a good idea?  Is it
safe?  Will it help?

This is a gamble,could help ,could hurt,I think up grading the weight of oil you are useing would do a better job.And could be that they did not put the proper weight oil in it,meaning thinner oil than it need,s.

A can of Marvel Mystery oil may work wonders. It certainly won't hurt anything.
